Ivanka for President….

The Michael Wolff excerpts in NY Mag just have so much good stuff in them. Another favorite is that Jared and Ivanka are plotting her path to the Presidency: “Balancing risk against reward, both Jared and Ivanka decided to accept roles in the West Wing over the advice of almost everyone they knew. It was a joint decision by the couple, and, in some sense, a joint job. Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president. The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.”

And the White House attacking the book will helps sales and resulted in an earlier release date:

The WSJ reports that Breitbart’s owners are considering firing Bannon and that Trump’s lawyers are trying to stop the book’s release….Can we just give Wolff a Pulitzer now?

Apparently even White House aides think that Trump’s tweeting might result in a nuclear war according to the Daily Beast: “It’s a running joke [in the West Wing] that nuclear war could start from the private residence during Fox [News] prime time,” one senior Trump aide told The Daily Beast. “Sometimes the joking includes more uncomfortable [or] nervous laughter than other times.

Jeff Sessions is trying to roll back Obama guidelines that relaxed efforts to prosecute marijuana crimes. Good luck with that.

Trump’s voter fraud commission produced a whole lot of nothing and he has now disbanded it. Guess maybe Hillary won the popular vote after all. Politico quoted Chuck Shumer: “The commission never had anything to do with election integrity.  It was instead a front to suppress the vote, perpetrate dangerous and baseless claims, and was ridiculed from one end of the country to the other. This shows that ill-founded proposals that just appeal to a narrow group of people won’t work, and we hope they’ll learn this lesson elsewhere.”

And lawmakers recently met with a Yale psychiatry professor to discuss Trump’s mental health. Politico speculates that there is a growing sentiment to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump.
